One of the most trusted companies in Vancouver, North Van Mover prides themselves on professional service. They offer just about any moving service you could need, including packing/unpacking and moving overly large items such as pianos, antiques, or statues.
Address: 219 Mackay Rd, Suite 121. North Vancouver
Go Truck Go offers moving, delivery, and junk removal services around Vancouver. The company specializes in smaller moves (950 square feet or less), and are known for great rates and moving speed. You can get a free estimate by visiting their website.

Papa’s Moving specializes in performing with speed, efficiency, and careful handling. If you’re moving out of the Vancouver area, Papa’s can help too, as they serve to and from Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast, and the Fraser Valley.
Address: 826 W 68 Ave, Vancouver
Jim’s Moving is based in Burnaby, but like Papa’s they also serve Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. In addition to moving they also do furniture and TV installations. Their rates are laid out clearly on their website, and you can also get a free estimate.
Address: 1859 Woodley Place, Burnaby
Real Pro Movers are also located in Burnaby, and have the standard moving/delivery features, and also offer cardboard boxes and wrap for sale. They bill by the hour, meaning you get what you pay for. They also have special promotions and deals available. Right now law enforcement, firefighters, and students all get 10% off.
Address: 2150 E Hastings St, Burnaby
John Q Moving offers both packing and moving services. Their headquarters is located in Surrey, but they serve all of Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island as well. Their website features a number of tips to pack your stuff as efficiently as possible.
Address: 102-15910 Fraser Highway, Surrey
Unlike all the other companies on this list, Bungo Box doesn’t do any moving services themselves. Rather, they rent out Bongo Boxes, much larger and sturdier than cardboard boxes.
The idea is that you rent the boxes, do your move – either with another company or by yourself – and then after you’re finished, they come back and pick up the boxes.
It’s an alternative system for those DIYers out there looking to avoid the costs of a full moving service.
Address: 8294 St. George Street, Vancouver
Much more than just a clever name Guys & Dollies offer everything you could want in a moving service. With more than a decade’s worth of experience – that’s a lot of boxes – they make any move look lightweight.
Address: 208 – 1901 Barclay Street, Vancouver
